A Sweet Suite Story


Once upon a time a guy wanted to propose to his gal. He decided a romantic trip to San Francisco would be just the ticket. He talked to the folks at the front desk of the hip Hotel Triton and they mentioned that he might want to consider checking out the new "Sweet Suite" designed by Marsh & Clark Design and sponsored by Haagen-Dazs. In it, they explained, there would be a freezer full of ice cream, luscious creamy interior and accessories all designed to extend the feelings of satisfaction that come from eating, well, ice cream. Even the throw blanket was designed to replicate the texture of a waffle cone.

To sweeten the deal, in addition to enjoying complimentary pints of Haagen-Dazs in their room, they could purchase custom Haagen-Dazs bathrobes and ice cream scented candles, with all proceeds benefiting Delancey Street Foundation (plus, a portion of their Sweet Suite guest tab would be donated to Delancy Street as well).

It turns out in addition to loving her guy, this gal also loved ice cream. So the suite was booked, ice cream eaten and the guy and gal? Engaged. And they all lived happily ever after. Let's hope they don't have to book themselves into a Weight Watchers suite for the honeymoon!
